Eric Theriault did his undergraduate studies at Stockton University, graduating magna cum laude with a bachelor in biology. His desire to further his education led him to New York Institute of Technology where he received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy, graduating with honors and inducted into Alpha Eta honors society. Eric was published as lead author in the journal of spinal cord medicine for research he did at the Bronx Veteran Affairs. This publication led to the prestige research award from New York Institute of Technology.
Prior to Joining Twin Boro Physical Therapy in 2016, Eric served in the United States Marines. He also had several clinical rotations as a physical therapist on Long Island where he gained valuable hands-on experience treating patients. At Twin Boro, Eric served as a staff physical therapist in our Toms River and Manahawkin locations and has since moved on to Director of our Egg Harbor Township location. Eric also works at Atlanticare hospital as a per diem physical therapist.
Eric’s expertise is extensive and continues to grow daily. Eric is trained in numerous evidence-based manual interventions including active release, instrument associated soft tissue mobilization, McConnell and KT taping, and Mulligan based joint mobilization. He is currently taking classes to become a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS).
When treating patients or managing other therapists, Eric implements Twin Boro’s One2FourTM Care Model to determine the “right level of health care” for each individual. This unique approach looks at the entire episode of care for the patient or athlete. This ranges from a relatively low level of function a patient might experience post injury or surgery all the way through to the peak performance required to return to their prior or preferred level of function. Therapists that skillfully combine manual therapy with evolving functional exercise along the One2FourTM continuum strive to achieve the individual’s “meaningful goals” and “desired outcomes”.
